Kylie on Stage

A major new exhibition celebrating magical moments from Kylie Minogue's highly-successful concert tours.

Drawn from Kylie's spectacular stage wardrobe held at Arts Centre Melbourne's Australian Performing Arts Collection, the exhibition features costumes from tours dating back to 1989 as well as more recent tours such as Kylie Aphrodite Les Folies in 2011. Featured designers within the world-first exhibition include Dolce & Gabbana, John Galliano, Julien Macdonald, Karl Lagerfeld and Jean Paul Gaultier, as well as local designers including Peter Morrissey and Mark Burnett.

Kylie on Stage also features a selection of designs, working drawings, photographs and footage that explore the creative process behind the costumes and provide rare glimpses into the world backstage.
